Short Biography:

I am passionate about the conservation of Africa’s natural resources and wish to contribute to the development of sustainable use practices through social learning and agency development processes towards a broader awareness of the true global value of Africa’s natural resources. I relish the challenge of working on these problems as they are typically complex, uncertain, involve multiple stakeholders with outcomes that are mostly transformative – engender positive societal and environmental change.
